Linear Obsessional is very excited to release an astonishing new album from the improv/electronic group Longstone.
risaikuru : a musical interpretation of two photographs taken in Miyagi prefecture, Japan April 2013.
1. ( Onagawa ) soil created from recycled tsunami rubble being used to help reconstruct the town. 2. ( Enoshima ) a tsunami tideline of scattered objects high up on the central hill of a tiny inhabited island .
For Longstone's risaikuru project, each member of the group viewed and musically interpreted the included photographs independently. The resulting recordings, along with original location recordings taken from Onagawa and Enoshima, were then collected together and themselves recycled into a cohesive composition.
For this project Longstone are:
Mike Ward: Original photographs and location recordings, electronics. Mike Cross: Programming, Electronics, Processing and final mix. Chris Cundy: Sho chord woodwind. Stuart Wilding: Piano frame , junk percussion. Kev Fox: Cigar box guitar.
